Woodbury Review

Woodbury Gardens is home to a large Ross community and feels like a nice escape from the throws of downtown Ann Arbor (and undergrads). You have everything you could need here: a gym / pool (2 pelotons are included at no additional cost), a dog park, tennis courts, grills, etc. A local diner, grocery store, wine bar, and local pub are also within a 3-5 minute walk! The shuttle that goes back and forth to Ross is also convenient.

International family living in Ann Arbor

Our experience so far has been great. The place is perfect for families. The clubhouse is amazing with a couple of study rooms and printing machine that has helped me in so many times.

Great place to live for couples!

My partner and I love living in Woodbury Gardens. The staff genuinely cares about residents, there's a shuttle to Ross, and a great (but small) gym. There's a great community of other couples who live here as well.

First 2 months at Woodburry Gardens

The community is ideal for people in couple or student parents with young families. The application process is unfair as you are required to pay down $1000 non-refundable to hold a spot for you.

Spacious and good value

Woodbury gives you more room for your money. There are three types of units (basic, mid-level, or upgraded) - I chose basic which means the kitchen has older looking appliances and linoleum flooring. The plus side is that I’m allowed to paint and hang nails. Some of my friends have the upgraded option and it does look nicer, with a wood looking kitchen floor, nicer appliances, and crown molding. It wasn’t worth the extra cost to me, but they love it.

Cons: Depending where your apartment is located, you could be far away from the clubhouse (like me). It’s a minor inconvenience but in the winter is tougher to get there and use the gym. Another con is that because it’s dog-friendly, you can hear your neighbors’ dogs when closer to your front door (like when sitting in the living room).

Pros: The clubhouse is great with free printing, a gym, and a pool for the warmer months. The staff are responsive and maintenance requests are filled quickly.

Great space, close enough to campus

Management is pretty good and a lot of upgrades units are becoming available. Great for couples, families, pet owners, etc. 3 minute walk from great grocery store. Shuttle from the leasing office runs to Ross and back many times per day at convenient times for class.

Good value, nice environment

It is cheaper than down town apartments. You also get more space. The only thing to consider is the commute. Different from living in down town, you need to use shuttle, bus and Uber to commute. But I get used to the commute.

Great for Students

Overall, this is an above average apartment complex. Management is diligent, responsive, and caring. I have had good experiences working with them so far. The apartment amenities are really good for Ross students. There is breakfast every weekday morning; there is coffee available at all times; there is a shuttle bus to and from campus; there is a reasonably nice, small gym; there are study rooms and computers in the admin building. Also, there is a nice grocery store nearby, and it is within walking distance (about 30 min) of Ross, the Big House, and downtown. This is a good place to live for 2 years while going to school.

Great option for couples

My wife came to Ross with me as a partner and she loves the environment of Woodbury gardens. Also, the apartments have a pretty decent space and the management is extremely responsive. If you need any repair they try to do that in less than 24h.

Getting around Yost


Yost Reviews

The neighborhood is not as lively or trendy as the downtown area, but it has everything we need in walking distance, including the best coffee stop in Ann Arbor, Roos Roast, a neat grocery store with $2 pints of beer, and a diner Michael Phelps used to frequent, which is perfect for any hungover breakfasts you may experience. It is a quiet and family and pet friendly neighborhood.
The neighborhood is very nice and feels very safe. There is a park very close by which is really nice, and the area is within a 10 minute walk to the stadium which is great. There are many people walking around with dogs in the area, and most people that live there are couples or families
The neighborhood is quiet and very safe. It is a short bike ride away from all that Ann Arbor has to offer. Public transit is also just steps away.
I really like this neighborhood since it is quite and away from traffic. There are also a lot of really nice parks nearby and the streets are great for running.
Really close to Ross (8 minutes) and 15 minute walk to downtown. Neighbors are mostly student athletes who tend to be quiet so no issues with noise.
Quiet neighborhood surrounding most of Woodbury except to the south, which is more commercialized - but not in a negative way.
The Ross people that live ain Woodbury do events from time to time. Nice neighborhood. Lots of Ross with family and kids.
The only downside to the neighborhood is that we get tailgaters in our driveways on Saturday mornings. Almost no parties, and it is a very respectful neighborhood with friendly neighbors.
